The top page is set at the Waterworks near the end of the Queen streetcar line.  Just before we moved out west we had a going away party and invited all our friends - even the wacky ones! Our friend on the skateboard had nerves of steel - or he was just plain CRAZY!! He's still alive after his stunts with beer bottles, he later became an animator - a safe career path for him...

We hired a Daiko Japanese drumming ensemble to play at our party, and the location couldn't have been more perfect. The sound reflected off the art deco buildings, attracting many passers-by. As the sun went down the sky turned purple and pink, which matched the colour of the band members' t-shirts. Best partay EVER!

Seeing Star Wars for the first time was a really big thrill for Ken, I liked it to, so we went to see it again and again.  The theatre was on the Danforth at the old Roxy Cinama. Smoking in theatres was okay back then... hard to believe.

Ahhh... to be a kid again! Why don't they make jolly jumpers for adults?
